I. Cold Raw Economics 101?
I hear all of this feel good talk going on about a booming economy. With the powers that be
that may be true, but, the general public is not buying any of it, that is because more and
more on a daily basis they are experiencing the dwindling buying power of the dollar. Well,
who appointed me an authority on the economy? No one, and I'm not an economist. But, if
no one else believe it, I believe I have the exceptional wisdom, perspective, and common
sense to bore straight to the heart and core of most matters.
I don't know the technical rules or theories on how an economy should function, so I'm not
bound by what not to do or anything else except my own raw wisdom and judgement. I
believe there are too many variables involved in an economy to rely too much on intelligence.
I believe time and history have produced a reliable tried and true ideology that is fail proof.
That ideology is "Let the free market place work with unhindered competition."
Now, if anybody thinks we have a completely free market place, I have some swamp land I'll
sell you or give you a discount on the Brooklyn bridge. Number one is you can't have a
completely free market place with government heavily involved in it. The governments job is
supposed to be to collect taxes and protect the country from internal and external enemies,
period. That is because governments operates on power not supply and demand.
The more government involvement the less of a free market place you will have. Almost
everyone thinks that with the way the poor are suffering that they can't survive without
government help, wrong. Almost everyone thinks that someone with great wisdom like me
doesn't care about the poor and lacks compassion, they are dead wrong. Through a life time
of deep mental struggle and suffering I am a survival and have been honed instinctively on
what it takes to survival against overwhelming odds.
I'm not about being popular, being liked or disliked, or about fame and fortune, I'm about this
great nation still left standing for my great grand children and future generations. Enough
about me, I think it is self serving but it's something I just needed to say. It may not seem like
it, but, if the government had stayed with only providing community kitchen and community
shelters, then the poor would be forced to depend on the extended family, the church, and
That would give the poor the power with their numbers to dictate prices down to their level
and they would be far better off today. But, as it is this global economy is going to collapse,
it's just a matter of time before we lose it all with the course we are on. Sure, in the beginning
the government helping the poor seemed like a good thing and still does to the poor and
However, government helping the poor and filling the role of sugar-daddy provider have
destroyed our free marketplace. It has destroyed our culture. It have destroyed our family
and moral values. It has destroyed our proud independent frontier like spirit. It has
destroyed our manufacturing base. It has destroyed our ability to barter to survive if the
economy collapses and on and on. In terms of raw survival we are just about done. Still, we
have the liberal media and the powers that be fiddling when we should be dismantling this
welfare state to save our culture and ability to survive.
But, I understand, I'm seen as a kook and is not taken seriously. Still, I hope someone will
hear my stress calls to the wise. I believe an economy is first about power and incentive. In a
free country that allows unhindered incentive and competition the economy can produce far
more than enough food to feed all of its citizens. Whereas, in countries that are not free and
chokes off incentives it can't even feed its own people.
Why be productive and work extra hard when someone doing far less receives the same
reward. That is the reason socialism will never work and will always eventually make
everyone equally poor except a privileged few. Sure, our U.S. economy is booming, but the
general public sees the hand writing on the wall and instinctively knows we are on a course
Everyday they see the illegal immigration invasion, the destruction of our culture, the
destruction of the traditional nuclear family, the destruction of our family and moral values,
the loss of our jobs and manufacturing base, and on and on. They know with no official
national language we are well on our way to becoming Balkanized. We must put out the fire
when it's small or we will lose our home, but the problem is, big liberal media can't see a
threat until our home will be totally engulfed in flame.
I'll guarantee you you will never do official business in France other than using the French
language. So, please don't tell me to shut up and be happy, the economy is just fine. In
perspective terms this big government welfare state economy is not out there operating all
alone it is tied to human nature and is the cause of every social and moral ill we have today.
We cannot survive very much longer as a free country or if at all, unless this big government
welfare state grip on the neck of the economy is broken.
There is very little lasting enjoyment of love or anything without discipline. The reason why a
free market place with competition is so superior and successful is because of its built in
discipline. If you take away hunger and a survival need you take away the discipline to
motivate a great many people, our welfare state has done that. I hear some pundits in denial
claiming that American will do tough farm work if you get the wages up to a living wage.
Bull, at twenty dollars an hour most wouldn't stay very long doing hard tough work out in the
scorching heat because with this welfare state there is no real survival price to pay for lack of
motivation. God knows I've tried to view the situation a thousand different ways. But, I can't
see no way for the United States or western Europe to survive much longer as free countries
unless the welfare state is dismantled.
History is my guide and the future will prove me right as by the fall of the Roman Empire.
However, we are far worse off than the Romans because they didn't have a welfare state. In
their case it was mostly the rich and well to do that were morally bankrupt. Whereas, our
welfare state has made even the poorest of the poor morally bankrupt with masses upon
masses with very little sense of self-responsibility or self-accountability.
The African American community has been devastated. We have almost a quarter of grand
mothers having to raise their grand kids. We have approaching eighty percent of all black
babies being born out of wedlock. With just twelve percent of the population black women
make up nearly sixty percent of new AID cases. With just twelve percent of the population
black males make up eighty percent of some prison populations.
Still, we have more churches than we've ever had, it seems like there is a church on almost
every corner. Still, all I hear is feel good talk, talk, talk, and no answers with any bite or teeth.
"Faith without action is wasted." "Those who live and depend on hope die fasting." "God
helps those who first helps themselves." The African American community is the canary in
the mine and I believe this even if no one else does, that the choices are, dismantle the
welfare state and survive or keep embracing it and go down with it.
The fact is there is very little of what it takes for a nation to survive through hard times left
anyway. The culture is shot all to hell. Our family and moral values are what come out of
Hollywood and a strong masculinely nuclear family is seen as a buck tooth red headed step
child. And, as for a last hope to survive through bartering, very few people know how to plant
let alone have a garden.
Even if you have a garden it will take ten shotguns to protect it when hard times hit. All of
these uninformed people that can't wait to "high tail it" out Iraq don't know or don't care that
sixty percent of our ability to eat is based on keeping that whole region secure. Almost
everything that keeps us alive is trucked long distance and those trucks don't run on air, they
run on fuel made from oil.
I'm tired folks, I'm tired of preaching about the same thing, I'm tired of trying to educate the
people, which the media should be doing. I know no one is listening, but if I can get through
to just one thick scull, I guess it will be worth it. May God bless and keep the great United
States Of America Always.
